Venn Wall Piece by Halima Cassell
A sculptural wall piece created for Halima’s solo exhibition at the Watts Gallery, Guildford. Limited edition of 100.
Influenced by the Venn diagram, Venn uses simple closed circles and ellipses to illustrate a state of being or relationship in perfect balance, visually representing the similarities and differences between two.
Mary and George Watts were both very spiritual and in balance with one another, and both used the spherical form across their work.
Dimensions: (H) 45.2 x (W) 27 x (D) 6.6 cm
Hand cast in white jesmonite. Each piece is hand finished and hand polished, with a split batten wall fixing, and comes with a signed edition certificate.
When Venn and its partner, Eclipsis, are pulled together their lines reflect and compliment one another, bringing together our emotional and spiritual self in perfect balance.
Combining strong geometric elements with recurrent patterns and architectural principles, Halima’s work utilises definite lines and dramatic angles in an attempt to manifest the universal language of number and create an unsettling sense of movement.
Halima concentrates on simple forms as the basis of her work in order to maximise the impact of the complex surface patterns in combination with heavily contrasting contours. This approach provides her with the tools to create the compelling drama and playful dynamism that characterises her work.
